Shakti, in an exclusive chat with ETimes, opened up about not being comfortable with Bollywood commencing shoots of their stalled projects so soon. He said, “I will not go out and work for now, nor will I allow my daughter Shraddha to resume work. I don’t think the threat is gone. I feel the worst is yet to come. I won’t let my children out for now. I know work is important but not at the cost of one’s life. It will be very chaotic if people start shooting now. I tell industry people in our group that it is better to wait than pay hospital bills. It is still a very bad state of affairs outside.”
Shedding some more light on the situation around, Shakti added, “There are no beds in the hospitals and they are charging a bomb to treat people. There was this news where a person was kept tied to his bed in the hospital because he was unable to pay his bills. I am going to make a video on this too. The world has become a very sad place now. There is no humanity left.”
The new Government Resolution issued by Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray has given a go-ahead to the producers wanting to start shooting. However, there is still a lot of uncertainty over the issue. Ashok Dubey of the Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) recently told Bombay Times that the shootings might not start before July.
